Apple employees will soon lose all their jobs because they lost their Jobs.

Apple products always have had the coolest designs. There`s a good reason Sir Jonathan Ive was knighted.

EVERYBODY loved those!! I was the first of my friends to get the clear red one and the day I brought it home my room mates were SO jealous. It`s now in my parents basement and my 8 year old niece saw it and asked "Can I have that cool see thru TV?" and when I said it was a computer she could not believe it.

I still have, and use my original blueberry ibook built in 98. Just to stream music, that`s all it`s really good for. I still love the design.

Since I was about 10 at the time these were popular, yes, I loved them. I hate all macs now, but that`s another story.

@DecoyOctopus- Xerox was paid for that technology. They weren`t going to do anything with the idea so Apple paid what Xerox wanted to be able to use it. Jobs told the people to their face that they were sitting on a gold mine but Xerox management just couldn`t see the potential.

PARC scientist talk about the meetings with Apple to show them their gui experiments

We used to have a big library full of those at my elementary school, all of them equipped with none other than Netscape browser. I remember our librarian telling us to use Google instead of Yahoo, because Google was a much better search engine.

@Corydoras Apple actually ripped the idea of a GUI from XEROX

Wow. You consistently say patently ridiculous things.

way back before you were even sprem ie in the 1970s Apple camputer came up with trem PC for the Apple and Apple II computer.
now a days there is no such thing as an apple. the G processor is now longer made. as for OS apple no longer has there own OS it unix .
so apple is just like a dell, sony, acer, HP and all the rest.

@jamie76... Mark your words? What if you`re wrong? Do we at least get to punch you in the nuts?

also, i really do think apple computers are better than pc`s. i was working on one of those old iMacs back in 2009. I`ve never seen a pc that could last more than 3 or 4 years. my current macbook pro I`ve had for maybe 5 years so far. every time my parents get a new pc they need to replace it within 3 or 4 years and all they use it for is work and I`ve been doing everything from gaming to watching porn on this baby since i was like 15. true, its slowing down quite a bit now, but i think dropping it down a few flights of stairs had something to do with that

@jamie76 , I`m absolutely no apple fanboy, but I recognize bullpoo when I see it, and what you said was bullpoo.
Apple not relevant? Who invented graphic desktops? How have they ever been in "obscurity"? There`s a reason why many professions rely on macs. Yes, they charge too much, yes most of the max users are douches.. but you`d say the same thing about microsoft if the roles were switched. Get a grip. Other than technical stuff, macs and PCs are not so different and one isnt worse than the other

Did that have a tower? I can`t remember. I have always been attracted to apples because I`m ocd and the wires and pieces of hardware were always nice

Ford survived the Edsel. Apple survived the iMac 2000."

Apple will not survive Apple.

they have only been relevant for the last 7 years since the iphone came out and they are quickly doing everything a company would want to do to make customers hate them.

mark me words, 5 years from now, they will be living back in obscurity where they came from.
